Can you please let me know why Aldo is a scam. Did you have a bad experience with him. He seems like a legit guy to me.

The $15 a day thing,..I can no longer do that. Look at the dates when I posted
that. If you want to know more about my tours ask JB or anyone of my
prior clients, I'll be glad to supply references.

I've known Aldo and JB since high school. Aldo's been surfing here since 1992
I think JB's been surfing here since 2000 or something. However
Aldo took off to the U.S. some 4 years ago after graduating from college
chasing the American Dream. JB stayed in Nicaragua and surfed during
the time Aldo was away and probably got better than Aldo.
Jb is now married and is a proud father of a little girl. CONGRATS!
Aldo is almost 30, and just moved back in with his parents in case the stuff hits
the fan he wants to be close to take care of them. He has no kids when the waves are down
he likes to drink
and possibly smoke bud, it doesn't interfere with his work at all though.
He may be a lot things but a scammer he is not.

I hired Aldo back in mid may for two weeks.My opinion is that Aldo is agreat driver and as far as guides go,amongst the best.imagine chickens,dogs,children,horses all wandering in and out of the "roads".Try making your way to yankee beach in a rented 4x4,good luck!Aldo is a good man.My only complaint is he should make a web site to promote himself and clearly present his fees,maybe some pictures would be cool.good luck Aldo!

Yes I agree he should get a website and so he does not have to keep posting his blatant self promotion here.

its obvious your constantly looking over these same posts over and over. you dont have to read these posts man. why do you read them any ways? you know all they are is bunch of expats telling you how crowded it is, guides offering services, people selling land, locals telling you to keep out... I mean, do you want to chat with people? have a friendly talk? do you live in nicaragua? Have you been to nicaragua? ?
